About the Organization
Second Stage Theatre produces an adventurous range of premieres, musicals, bold new interpretations of contemporary plays, and unique theatrical experiences from America's most dynamic writers of the 21st century. Through the discovery of emerging talent, the commissioning of new work, and the creation of a training base for directors, Second Stage reflects the diverse city and the world we live in today and reaches an ever-growing audience through its Broadway runs, national tours and regional productions.

About the Program
Second Stage Theatre offers internships in both production and administration. Interns work directly with individual department heads & staff to receive practical training in administrative management or technical theatre. Interns are selected by application and interview. We expect a willingness to work hard and high standards of performance. In return, interns are treated as members of our professional staff and receive intensive hands-on experience. We ask that all interns be reliable, conscientious and energetic. Interns are evaluated in meetings with their supervisors before leaving Second Stage. These meetings provide a forum for discussion of the intern's progress, future expectations, projects, and goals.
